been tracking china's political transition. president barack obama's administration has watched the chinese economy and military grow and has promised to take a tough stance with china on trade and other economic matters. the obama administration has also closely monitored china's disputes with japan and southeast asian nations over the islands in the east and south china seas. senior officials have refused to take sides. the president announced a year ago he will shift his country's focus to the asia-pacific region. he will have a chance to talk more about that plan over the weekend. obama will begin a four-day tour of southeast asia on saturday. he will be visiting thailand and myanmar and will attend the east asia summit in cambodia. the president promised during his re-election campaign to put more pressure on china to make it meet basic international standards with respect to trade. but analysts say despite his plans the world's top economies are tightly woven together and that interactions will continue. >>> the south korean government welcomed china's new leadership. >> t
states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we take or are the re-- reactions that are going to be caused by our actions actually going to cause greater threats to our closest allies and to ourselves? unfortunately, that's what we're seeing. in fact, i had seen an article in may of 2010 that indicated that this administration, the obama administration, sided with israel's enemies in demanding that israel disclose any nuclear weapons. we had never sided with israel's enemies in trying to push israel into doing something against its own interests. when you're a very small country surrounded by countries that want to see you go away, it is important that they not know all of your defenses. going back in the old testament, you find history, king his kaija -- king hezekiah showing all the defenses they had in their armory he showed them to the leaders from babylon. as a result, ultimately that kingdom was lost to the babylonians. you don't show other nations, even people you th
administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. that means not french, not english. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me j
the obama administration spend yuyour tax money not just on health services, but p.r. to convince that you should you love obamacare? a house committee wants to know. they subpoenaed hhs committee chair kathleen sebelius. we have a panel here to discuss it. rick, what does the hill want? >> the hill wants to know what kathleen sebelius was spenning mono, and whether there was money proanted for hhs publicity, directed to improve the standing of the obama health care law. if it was spent on those purposes, it wasn't really doing its job. the obamacare is not nearly as possible as the administration wanted. i would also say, look, it is the law of land. as a political matter, this is a very legitimate inquiry, but have you more and more republicans saying, it's time to move on. i don't see this as a fruitful area to go through the things that happened in the last term. it is the law of the land. there is no point it try to repeal it as this jumpghture, right now. i don't know whati are going to accomplish. >> greta: apparently, gawp, correct me if i am wrong, one of the programs spent $20 mi
? >> the israelis recognize theyor their own. i think they have little confidence in the obama administration to stand by them. they are pursuing their opponents. they have just eliminated an important one in hamas and hamas has been a terrible thorn in their side, has been threatening them, been conducting operations against them and this is a strong message to hamas that, you know, we are at you. you know, we will escalate this. i think -- they recognize this is the only message that hamas will understand. >> sean: if we can, tony, i want to rerack what we just played here. they videotaped this attack on jabari. you know, you can see the yellow circlesarn the car, that's the car he is in. and if i am an extremist and watching this, i am thinking, you know, those are israelis, they are pretty tough with their defense. >> i gotta tell you, it's a good shot. that's when we should be doing with precision. i am not a big fan of the drone program because i want to have live prisoners, but that's a good shot-- >>> great shot. >> this is a message to all of us, we will wait, we will be patient and
consulate attack. >>> what lawmakers say they want to know about the attack from the obama administration. >> and happening right now, live, these are live pictures senate arms services committee is holding a confirmation hearing for joseph denver. he is slated to take over at commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan. he would replace general john allen. allen was supposed to be pro momentsed to supreme allied commander in europe, but that's on hold right now. after questionable e-mails between allen and a woman in florida were discovered, it was part after investigation that led to the resignation of david petraeus, as ahead of the cia, because of an affair. >>> it is 7:09. breaking news, sal will tell us about it. >> reporter: i have two breakers. one is a house fire in san francisco. news chopper 2 is over this house fire, near the 101/260 interchange in san francisco. and just knowing a little bit about the area, this is an area where there have been plenty of house fires in the last year or two. it's kind of peculiar. firefighters say once portable heaters come in winter, the
and the senate want to know what went wrong, what members of the obama administration knew, what they knew it and why tke th-pbt do more to prevent the attack or respond in time. chief intelligent correspondent catherine herridge is live on capital hill with all of this. catherine the latest. let's start with the testimony of general petraeus and the testimony we just heard about that secretary clinton will attend. >> well, thank you, jenna and good morning. two important developments here on capitol hill. fox' confirmation this morning that the former cia director david petraeus will testify before the house and senate intelligence committees. these will be closed or classified sessions early friday morning, and also confirmation that secretary of state hillary clinton will testify here on the hill and give the read out, or the results of their internal review at the state department about the benghazi attack, and that announcement was made at the house foreign affairs committee a short time ago. >> further i would like to note that secretary clinton has committed to testifying before our
may find out. the house ways and means committee says the obama administration has stonewalled request for information. forget co-pays. this illinois doctor charges only five bucks a visit. the 87-year-old doesn't even accept medical insurance. he claims it's not worth the hassle. he says he's just interested in helping people and not making much dough. all right. steve? >> steve: president obama yesterday held his first press conference in eight months and got testy when asked about the deadly attack in libya where four americans were murdered. >> i would like for you to address the families, if you can, on 9-11 as commander in chief, did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> i'll address the families not through the press. i'll address the families directly as i already have. i can tell you that immediately upon finding out that our folks were in danger that my orders to my national security team were do whatever we need to do to make sure they're safe. >> steve: so has the president been forth coming with the american people and is congress satisfied with his respon
to exam why security arrangements were so inadequate and why the obama administration offered to shift public response. here's what president obama had to say. this is his press conference in the white house. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interest in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i have said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. host: president obama at a press conference. yesterday the ambassador he was talking about is susan rice, ambassador to the u.n. here's an image of her in the "was
. stop fighting these wars. our national debt through the bush and obama administrations, our debt went up over $4 trillion just because of these wars that are totally senseless. the loss of life. now there are talking about, what are we going to go in -- we are so much involved with libya. look at what is happening with libya. it want to go to war against iran. i would say, that is the place to have big cuts. we all ought to agree on doing that. i want to raise -- i would not raise taxes. we need to cut spending. if you raise taxes, you're going to have a weaker economy. some of the tax cuts, even for the middle-class occurred for the bush administration. you do not want to raise taxes on the middle class. it will not be enough money. i think you have touched on something. i think we need to deal with the military. we cannot do that unless we change the foreign policy. we are not the world policeman getting involved with all of these countries. i think the american people ought to agree on that issue more readily than anything else. i do not see why we should talk about cutting health
of the differences between the bush administration and the obama administration is that we believed, and a big many of us continue to believe, that this is a long war not against al qaeda. al qaeda is one manifestation but against a particular ideology. so our national security goals were, one, keep america safe, too, help promote freedom around the world. and those two things are linked because we believe they were linked. free countries are less likely to make were on their neighbors. so i think that to me the grand strategic goal of public diplomacy is the same as the grand strategic goal of foreign policy and national security policy, which is to achieve those two goals. and i think you never ever want to forget that those are the goals that need to be achieved. and public diplomacy's role in that i think does, in fact, revolve around the ideological part. and it is, not to quote myself, i hate to do that, but i can't say it any better. [laughter] >> a great man once said. >> the aim must be to ensure that negative sentiments and day-to-day grievances toward the united states and its allies did
and it was not terrorism. and mccain addressed obama's remarks saying he understood the president was not happy with him, but -- >> this president -- this administration has been guilty of caw loss sal incompetence or engaged in a cover up. >> meanwhile, earlier mccain was asked if there is a security threat that exceeded that of the libya attack. >> i say with great respect that is one of the dumbest questions i have ever heard. >> thank god he said it with great respect. >> you were saying in the green room mccain should move on and stop asking questions about libya. as far as they are concerned the administration has been honest up and front. i have to say that surprised me. >> i will stick to it right here. the truth of the matter is it was real schoolyard stuff. on the face of it it seems normal. that was the tone. he is protecting the woman, but it sounded condescending. it is like, why are you picking on a girl? he implied john mccain was a coward for physical picking on her when we know that john mccain is anything but a coward. obama is himself hiding behind the skirt of this woman at this time
and conservative thinktank experts offered their assessment of the administration's actions on ben ghazi. the attack killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador chris stevens. yesterday, president obama intensely defended u.n. ambassador susan rice who was under fire for saying the attack was a protest gone out of control, rather that a terrorist incident. today, democrats and republicans went after each other for trying to politicize ben ghazi. >> what is clear is that this administration, including the president himself, has intentionally misinformed, lied to the american people in the aftermath of the tragedy. >> if you want an honest investigation of this tragedy, we will join you. but if you want to persist in trying somehow to put this, lay this at the doorstep of the president or the secretary of state or the united nations ambassador, you will find us ready and willing photoresist to the teeth. -- willing to resist to the teeth. >> reporter: david petraeus was a concern among some committee members today who want to know exactly what is in the report compiled by petraeus
